Will it be used on other OSes than Windows?

I don't know the answer, but from my point of view this is an important
question which needs to be answered before I can think if I like it
or not, and before I can decide to be interested in it or not. Very
important.

On Unix most libraries are written in C, as are runtime systems for
most languages. All other languages are far less popular. Will another
common (= used for interoperability) language be common (= popular)
after five years?

There are two separate questions: can an idea similar to CLR work
well at all? and is this concrete Microsoft's product good?
